privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going

is not enough to get him elected president of the united states, so he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and explaining the damage that has been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that the next six weeks are completely unimportant to him. so we expect to see a little bit of a bump. one of the things i wanted to add, though this bump he receive is coming before barack obama speaks next week. he is a fabulous speaker. people like his wife and children, and the fact he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace and reproductive rights, so i would think we would see any bump that mitt romney got this week probably evaporate after next week. >> jennifer: karl one more quick question, romney claimed that republicans had united behind the president following his election. take a quick listen. >> oh, god. >> jennifer: hang on. take a listen. >> romney: americans always come together after elections -- >> jennifer: well, i'm not sure if you caught it all but he was clearly saying that his party has supported the pres
